RFE: update nedit file locations to new xorg standards
Last modified: 2013-07-02 19:09:13 EDT
This should really be a Fedora Extras/nedit report rather than a Fedora
Description of problem:
1. A new "standard" is coming for xorg-x11 which eliminates the /usr/X11R6
directory tree and puts files in the appropriate place under /usr ... the nedit
package needs to be updated for this standard.
2. Eliminate distributing the "client" portion of nedit (/usr/X11R6/bin/nc and
/usr/X11R6/man/man1/nc.1x.gz) since these filenames conflict with /usr/bin/nc
which is part of the nc (netcat) package distributed as part of Fedora Core.
3. Personally, I never use nc but someone might. Therefore, an alternative is
to rename nedit's nc to something like "nedit-client".
nedit still not listed in Bugzilla as a component under Fedora Extras
is there anything else to be done from my side (except editing the owners list)
to let the new bugzilla entry for nedit in Extras to be created? I added nedit
there but the bugzilla entry doesn't seem to be created.
Nedit no more uses the /usr/X11R6 hierarchy.
